general rule is 2.5"

I was at 3.5" before I swapped my UCA (in-process now), didn't have any major problems besides blown CV boots.

but that's a different story


but every truck is different. Some people will be fine, some will get vibes

Wouldn't the year of the vehicle make a difference? I am under the impression your info is in regards to an early Tacoma while the OP is asking about a late style Tacoma.

About 2.5" is the max and that is pushing it from everything you'll read on here.

not really. our vehicles all have the same suspensions; sans differently placed bolt holes and model specific hardware

lifting affects both ifs systems the same
